Dear Mr. Spitzer,
I would like to start by reminding you that if you really wanted to be a *private* citizen, you could have -- but you have chosen a public life. So don't hide behind some imaginary cloak of privacy now.
Secondly, I just want to remind you that for ANY citizen to engage in criminal activity is not a 'private' matter. Yes, what you and your family do behind closed doors really is private (within legal bounds, of course), but you should be held to that same legal standard that any other citizen would for engaging in illicit activity outside of the home.
Please just go away. Use your half-billion dollars for the legal protection you'll need, retreat to your *privacy,* and don't tell me about it.
